This practise is good to know.

Without the empty cell, how do you actually know it's a corner list?
Do I get this right: headcell is the negend cell, unless the negend
cell is blank. When the negend cell is blank, it's a corner list and
the headcell is something else? And what then? If we are to show the
headcell somehow differently, we should have an exact way to define it.
